Rafael Cabrera-Bello
2018–19 Fantasy Outlook
It feels like Cabrera Bello has been around for 20 years, always on the brink of greatness, yet never breaking through. In reality, he's actually only played full time on the PGA Tour for two seasons now. He's played very well during those two seasons, but he hasn't taken that next step yet. That next step would be either a PGA Tour win or better yet a major win, but something always seems to get in the way with Cabrera Bello. On the bright side, since joining the PGA Tour two years ago, he's played 19 and 20 events, which is better than the typical 15-16 events that most transplants play. He's also put up solid earnings numbers, posting $1.9 in his first season and $2.4 million last season. It's the $2.4 million that makes it hard to pull the trigger on him his year though as unless he finds a win somewhere on the schedule, it's unlikely that he'll significantly improve upon that number. Cabrera Bello has plenty of value in draft formats, but not in salary cap formats this season. Read Past Outlooks
Top-15 finish at WGC-HSBC Champions
October 28, 2018
Cabrera-Bello settled for a one-under 71 in the final round of the WGC-HSBC Champions to finish in a tie for 14th place.
ANALYSIS
On Sunday when conditions were at it's toughest, Cabrera-Bello came out and got off to a brilliant start with birdies on four of the first eight holes. Unfortunately, the Spaniard would close out the round with bogeys on three of the last four to drop back outside the top-10. Cabrera-Bello only found half the greens in regulation this week, but sported a 1.61 putting average on the greens when he did hit them. After beginning the new season with a T50, Cabrera-Bello has now gone T3-T14. He will not play any event next week.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Cabrera Bello impressed in his first full season on the PGA Tour with four top-10s and eight top-25s in just 19 starts. More impressive was the placement of those top-10s. Cabrera Bello finished in the top-5 at The Players and the Open Championship. At just 33, there's still time for Cabrera Bello to improve and if he can find another gear at the big events, he can take the next step in his career. His number from last season leaves just enough room for improvement and as such, he's definitely a guy to consider this season.
The Spainiar really became known to American golf fans this past year, cracking the top 30 in the OWGR. He'll be in all the majors and WGCs, and his value will be determined by how many other events he enters. He hasn't indicated his plans as yet.
